Financial Law and New Technologies

This course will be offered in an online setting. New technologies are constantly testing well-established principles of financial law. Investors and other users of financial services can take advantage of new FinTech opportunities to have better services at cheaper costs, but policymakers are struggling to strike a good balance between the need to foster innovation and the necessity to protect weak market participants. How can financial law cope with technological developments on blockchain, new payment services, crypto-assets, crowdfunding, high frequency trading, and robo-advice?

Financial Law and Economics: The (Next) Financial Crisis and Europe

The financial crisis of 2008 shook up the world and was coined as the worst financial crisis since the 1930’s Great Depression. Only a year later, the European Sovereign Debt Crisis destabilized the financial market as it came out that the debts of some countries, like Greece, exceeded their GDP. Are these crises really over? Or is the next crisis just only one step away? By way of lectures, participation in workshops and writing a paper, participants get insights in these issues while formulating solutions for a more sustainable financial system.

Understanding and Managing Mergers and Acquisitions

Many executives say they use M&A (Mergers & Acquisitions) as a means to consolidate or expand the market position or increase its production efficiency.

By adopting a multidisciplinary and institutional perspective, this course aims to increase the understanding of merger determinants and effects. This course deals with the economic, legal and financial aspects of Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A).
